Baird Private Equity Sets Up Shop In Asia

Mar 3 2008 | 12:47pm ET

Baird Private Equity, the global p.e. group affiliated with Robert W. Baird & Co., has established Baird Capital Partners Asia, to focus on providing growth equity capital to smaller, high-potential companies in China or Greater China.

Through offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, the Baird Capital team will seek growth equity investment opportunities that complement Baird Private Equity’s investments in the business services, manufactured products and healthcare sectors. The Asia team includes partners Hock Goh, Huaming Gu and Brett Tucker.

“We see an attractive number of investment opportunities in Greater China, and BCPA’s investment strategy is a natural extension of our proven success in Asia,” said Paul Carbone, director of Baird Private Equity. “As private equity has flowed into China, smaller high potential companies have been left behind.”

Baird Private Equity and its affiliates have raised and managed approximately US$2.4 billion in capital and invested in over 220 companies since the 1980s.
